This will be a real quick post.

July is right around the corner (at the time of this post it’s here) and the end of school is now complete.  To kick off my first summer project I chose the Statue of Liberty Crochet Pillow by Michele Wilcox for RedHeart.  Being a native New Yorker I would be partial to the Statue of Liberty.  I must admit after living in NY for over 30 years I’ve never visited “ole lady liberty”.

My son constantly reminds me that I do not need anymore yarn.  I’ve made a conscience effort NOT to buy anymore yarn.  So far, so good.  I’m using what I have stockpiled around the house.  I look at my yarn as eye candy, he sees it as clutter, lmao.

All I needed were 16X16 pillow forms and of course I had quite the collection of the size needed.  No worries, they were on sale at the time.  Pillow forms can be found using the link below or at your favorite craft store.

My pillow was made quite differently as far as color choices.  The instructions were easy to follow and the project worked up quickly.  It took me four days to complete and that was because I’m working on other projects.

The pillow may look red but it’s really a magenta color.  That’s my handsome son below who looks thrilled to be holding a pillow.

He calls this the fakest smile ever.  This is the back of pillow that was done this way on purpose.  I figured if I got tired of looking at the front I can flip it for a different look.  Two pillows in one, hooray for me!

I started crocheting again after many years. Back then when I thought of the word crochet a granny square comes to mind first. No one was wearing crocheted clothes and the fad of crocheting died. I picked up a hook and some yarn and I was on my way. No more granny square blankets for me. Thanks to the internet you can learn anything you want and if you search just a little bit further you will find people who share your passion. I immediately I became enthralled in Pinterest, Ravelry and Facebook crochet groups. If I ran into a snag there was YouTube, I can learn a new stitch from a live person. So two years later here I am, a certified crochet addict and lover of yarn.

If you are a die hard crocheter you will understand. I have so many WIP’s going on at one time until I confuse myself. The attack of the yarn has made it to my home. Yarn has found it’s way from my computer room, bedroom, and now it rests in the family room. Pretty funny having my son’s friends over and they are moving yarn to sit down and I provide the entertainment of showing them my finished work. I think that’s the real reason why they want to come by so much.

To combat the many unfinished projects I decided to keep an online presence of what I do, make and find on the web.
